Great food, great service

We recently tried Papa Bob's and my only regret is that it took us too long! My son and I each had sandwiches and the portions were very reasonable and the price was right on. We also really felt like home as folks came out of the kitchen to see how things were for us - they were great. I... read more

I recently tried this place due to my dad recommending them but I don't see how they've got this many good reviews I found their food flavorless and dry and way overpriced. $6 for 5 mozzarella sticks are they serious and they're famous destroyer sandwich is $15 not even that big they put extra bread in the middle to make...

Brought a softball team in for a middle of the afternoon lunch in between games. Fit us right in the back room and took great care of us. I had the Destoyer: Three meats in a giant sandwich. Other good things were said about the beans, ribs, fish sandwich, cheesecake, and pulled pork. Highly recommend.

Better than other well known BBQ places in the KC area. There meat is tender and the service is friendly. Was also featured on Diners Drive-ins &Dives.

We left the Greasarama in Platte city on Saturday afternoon about 5:30 with 8 people in our party. It is a small restaurant but it accommodated all of us. We didn't have to wait to order or for our to be delivered. The food was good and staff was friendly. The owners came out and checked on us and make... More

Papa Bob's is a hidden gem just east of Bonner on K-32. It has the feel of a small-town diner, with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We almost always are visited at our table by one or both of the owners. But the food is the real reason to stop; their burnt ends are my favorite--simply amazing. And we always look... More

We stopped by Papa Bob's on our way to the Cricket Wireless Amphiteater and were definitely not disappointed. Nice little hideaway with excellent barbeque. I have to say they do have a dish called the "Ultimate Destroyer", which is about 4.5 pounds of meat plus some side dishes. If one person can finish the entire dish in about 45 minutes,... More

We had take out toward the end of the day and maybe we got the ends of everything... But the taste was just not there. I had the beef plate with a couple of sides. The beef was not seasoned at all, no rub in this that I could taste. The sides were OK but not extradinary. Tasted like a... More

Had a great experience at Papa Bob's on our very first visit. Employees are very friendly and took the time to go over the menu. Papa Bob came out and introduced himself to us and we had a nice conversation. The restaurant is cute with old fashion bar stools and nice tables and chairs. It is also very clean. My... More

I would say this is a hidden gem if you are looking for some good bbq and an open menu for other items to satisfy the rest of the family. The prices were reasonable and we didnt have to fight a big crowd on the weekend. Owners were nice and checked in on us at least 3 times. Definitely a... More
